Blackberry Smoke at First Avenue 2/27


Blackberry Smoke’s show at First Ave had a few things in common with the Flaming Lips from earlier this week. There were beards (although they went from hipster fuzz to Duck Dynasty), fun, an enthusiastic audience and confetti (bit and pieces still hiding from Tuesday night). The band’s new album “Holding all the Roses” was #1 on the billboard country chart last week.

From the first chord, the audience was singing along and having a great time of it. Stage lights were good but clearly there to support the music and leave it at that. No gimmicks, no crazy stunts on stage. As Charlie Starr summed it up: “We’re from Georgia, and we’re here to play some Rock’n Roll”.
